Sleepy Friday...

Aren't Fridays supposed to be the easiest...most relaxing day of the week? Whoever designed my schedule forgot that unwritten rule...oh wait...that was me. My Friday usually goes something like this...
5:30 AM wake up get ready and go to work
6:30-11:00 AM train (for some reason Friday is like the golden day for all of my clients...who knows why?? Maybe they feel like they'll be able to sneak in that Friday night dessert if they work real hard...) It's a good thing I have awesome clients, and I absolutely LOVE training ALL of them!
11:00-12:15 Squeeze in a workout...always rushed on Fridays, but better than nothing. Then I feel like I can sneak in that Friday night dessert ;)
12:15-12:45 BUST it home, Shower (yeah I'm like a speed demon on Fridays), eat some lunch, and Get ready to head to Point.
1:00-6:00 Work @ Point. Crank up the Itunes and sip some DDP, so as to stay awake to work! It's a good thing Fridays @ Point are pretty chill and I get to sit down cause I'm always super tired at this point in the week!
6:00...I stumble out of work, glad to see the weekend. Now it's time to try and work up the energy to go play with friends and such...I'll be honest sometimes it's rough. And sometimes, it just takes a little DDP to get me going!
1:00...2:00ish...I stumble blindly to my bed after my friends have successfully kept me going all night. One thing is true...I LOVE Saturdays. I get to sleep in!

I'll leave you with some photos from the past week...Exhibit A: Benita's B-day. Precious.
Exhibit B: Heath came into town last Saturday and we got to go to dinner with her and hang out for a bit. It was so fun! Love her...also precious.

Have a good Saturday everyone!

The adventures of Pegs and Midge


Once upon a time there were these two girls who both loved to dance. Both decided that dancing in highschool was probably a good idea, so they both tried out for their high school dance team. Luckily, both happened to have some pretty sweet moves, and they both made it. Coincidentally both girls happened to be the same height, and they became kickline partners. Due to their perfectly straight high kicks, and sassy smiles they may or may not have stolen the show. This was the beginning of a beautiful friendship; one full of green, blue, wheelbarrows, and state championships of course. One of the girls was a year older than the other girl, so she moved into the crazy grown up world first. Luckily, her alma mater needed a little help, and beckoned her back to help coach the team she loved so much. The two kickliners were instantly reunited. Kickliner #1 loved having Kickliner #2 come visit her at college, and Kickliner #2 loved having Kickliner#1 as her coach. As soon as the younger of the two graduated becoming roommates was a must. The two realized they had more in common then they thought. They became very good at traveling, shopping, road-tripping, eating at their favorite resturaunts, baking, and they even kept up thier dancing skills. They made some amazing friends and memories, and made sure their rooms were always right next to eachother. Soon everyone associated the two as peas in a pod, even confusing the two at times. Kickliner #1 an Kickliner #2 continued to be best friends. They loved to eat popcorn, workout, make fun new friends, go on trips, go shopping, and drink diet dr. peppers. Yep...two peas in a pod they were...

XOXOXO Happy B-day Beni! You are the bestest friend ever!!!!
(tune in for the rest of the story when Kickliner #1 and Kickliner #2 meet handsomely, adorable, smart twins and they have a dual wedding...and then they coach a drill team...to carry on the legacy,)

Happiness

With all that has been going on lately with politics, the economy, and everything else, it seems everyone is constantly looking at the downside of things. I realized the other day that sometimes listening to it frequently starts to rub off on me and my attitude becomes more negative. I become more cynical about my life and the bad side of everything is all I see as well. I know this isn't how it has to be, we may not be able to change our circumstances, but we can change how we react to them. Let me make it clear that I know life isn't made up of ice cream, sing-alongs, and sunshine (although I wouldn't mind if it were). I also realize that we can't brush negative circumstances and outcomes under the rug and by doing so magically make them disappear. We all have our share of trials, problems, and difficulties. I am a firm believer in the power of a positive attitude. I feel like we all have the ability to be happy, despite the "downsides" in our lives. It is up to us to make a conscious decision as to what our attitude outcome will be.
One thing that helps remind me to have a good attitude is to think of all the things that make me happy in life...you'll find i'm easily pleased...
My family, my friends, the gospel, exercising, the gospel, guilt-free desserts, baking, cooking, taking pictures and mercilessly posting them on my blog and facebook, really good movies that make me think, really funny movies that let me stop thinking for a bit, frozen yogurt, diet dr. pepper, arizona, shopping, Christmas, Christmas Shopping, Rob & Big, sleeping in, unexpected text messages, having my arm tickled, reading a really good book, my ipod, finding new music, funny youtube videos, good smells (baked goods, cinnamon pinecones, clean kitchens, garlic, etc.) a clean car, cold cereal, seeing old friends, inside jokes, new clothes, being crafty, service, brushing my teeth, eating at my favorite resturaunts, visits at work, BAM, dancing, laying out, getting my hair done, general conference, driving with the windows down, beautiful weather, phone calls from the fam, getting to go home, I could go on and on and on...there really are so many little things that make me happy in life...
If you haven't had a chance to read Elder Uchtdorf's Talk from Womens Session of General Conference please do... It's SO good!

Halloween

I LOVE Halloween. Well, to be honest I love all holidays. I think we always had so much fun celebrating holidays growing up that it has kind of just rubbed off on me. I get excited about about St. Patties Day! (Maybe it's due to my obsession with the holiday colored M&M's...who knows). This Halloween was SO fun! First of all, Benita came back home!! She has been at her sister's for like a week and a half recovering from surgery, and I missed her SO much! I seriously didn't know what to do with myself! Benita, Lindsay, and I went to Pizza Factory for dinner, in full costume of course.


After dinner we headed up to Brad's cabin for a Halloween party. It was so much fun! Everyone came dressed up. There was a ton of food...and sweets of course. I was reminded why I don't buy candy. No self control, if it's in front of me I eat it.

There were some fantastic costumes...Wes: Waldo. Brad: Sumara from the ring. (He was trying to make the makeup look like blood. It was pretty funny)

Rob came with giant smarties taped all over his pants. He was a "smarty pants."

We all hung out and played games and just talked for a while. I love being in a place where everyone is there to just hangout. It is so relaxing. We danced, had a mario-kart tournament, played Halloween Charades (as per Brad's request), watched a scary movie, and of course played the cabin favorite Ghost in the Graveyard.

We slept over, and woke up to Brad cooking up some pumpkin pankcakes. YUM! It was so much fun! Thanks Boo-Rad!!
